Major: BS Computer Science
Hometown: Udaipur, India
I chose this major because... I love Computer Science. I grew up around technology and aspire to combine creativity and technology in the future. I love all the CS courses that I take, and am looking forward to learn more and more in this field.
Favorite Course(s): CS283 was definitely one of my favorites as it was challenging, and I saw myself grow. The lectures were really nice too. I also really liked CS260 as it was a fun course.
Clubs/Extracurricular Activities: I am in Drexel Club Basketball, I was also a Peer Mentor for International Students. I am in the process of becoming a group exercise instructor for Bodycombat.
Co-ops I've done:
- I worked as a Software developer at Susquehanna International Group.
- Now I am doing my International co-op at Cloud Optix as a Junior Software Developer.
Favorite thing/place at Drexel: I love EVERYTHING about Drexel. From the classes I take with the quarter system, to the Recreation center where I do Bodycombat and swim on a regular basis, from coop to working part time at the Gym (amazing work place), from being with friends on campus to exploring the city as much as possible. I love everything!
When I'm not at Drexel, I'm... exploring the city, going to Sixers games, running on the schuylkill banks trail, trying new food places in the city, or at trader joes getting groceries.
When you are in Philadelphia, I think you should... Walk around the city and get food and ice cream, go the the river bank and have a little picnic, take a walk from city hall to the art museum and visit Cira Green at night!
Advice to new/incoming CCI students: Drexel is amazing, and there is no need to stress out about anything. Just stay on top of schoolwork. Take as much help from your professors as you can, because they can help you and guide you in the best way possible. Also if you are on top of your schoolwork, you will get the weekends to relax, de stress and enjoy the city which makes the perfect balance!
What is your dream job? My dream job is working somewhere where I am using innovation, creativity and advanced technology on a regular basis!
Favorite Animated Character: Marvel characters, especially Spiderman.
Hello, I am Shiv! I can describe myself using one word, passion. I am passionate about Computer Science, meeting new people, making new friends, Bodycombat, swimming, and this city. I love where I am right now, and so thankful for all the opportunities available to me.

I love the Marvel Universe.
I love mystery books/tv shows!
So please feel free to talk to me about any one or all of the above!!!
